Some light foxing within. Emily Daniel, wife of Danel Press' founder Henry Daniel, worked closely with Katharine Adams, and in 1901, the latter exhibited fifty-six bindings at Worcester House, the home of the Daniel Press.

Paper Size: 32.5" x 22.5" Image Size: 29.5" x 17.5" - Scarce black & white original photogravure after Stanley Berkeley, c1896 published by L. Hildesheimer & Co. Limited, London & Manchester. Printed in Austria. Lettered name in the plate "Stanley Berkeley", below which, in the mat, is the penciled signature of the artist. Embossed in blind, on the centre of the bottom edge of the mat with is small round impression "ADU 300", incorporated Publishers' Association seal.There is a 2" and a couple of 1/2" imprinted with coloured pencil repairs to the image at the top right and centre, and the y in Berkeley's pencil signed name has a small section of paper pulled off affecting the Y, otherwise in very good condition. These repairs were in 1997 by a professional conservator (report available and supplied). Condition on this scarce circa 1896 photogravure print is fair. The Eagle of the French 45th Ligne captured by the Royal Scots Greys. Painting by Stanley Berkeley depicting the famous charge of the Scots Greys at Waterloo. The kilted figures carrying muskets are the 92nd Highlanders. According to legend, the men of the 92nd hung on to the stirrups of the Scots Greys during the charge. Although both regiments record it as part of their history, independent eyewitness accounts do not confirm the truth of the "stirrup charge".Stanley Berkeley (1855-1909) was an English painter of animal, sporting and historical subjects, especially military scenes. Born in London, he exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy, the Grafton Gallery, the New Watercolour Society, and elsewhere from 1878 until 1902, and many of his pictures were retrospective military scenes of the English Civil War and the Battle of Waterloo, such as For God and King: An Incident in the Civil War, and Gordons and Greys to the front: An Incident at Waterloo.

Stone, Treasurer of the Eugene Field Monument Committee, in full: "In answer to your letter of March 26th. It will give me great pleasure to design the cover for the Monument Souvenir Edition of Eugene Field's of field flowers. Do I understand from you that the lettering of the cover will be as follows? Kindly advise me if you wish any change made." White then proceeds to draw two preliminary sketches of what he intended the binding and cover of the souvenir book edition to look like. Note: Melville E. Stone was the founder of the "Chicago Daily News" and had hired Eugene Field as a writer for that publication. Upon Field's death in 1895, Stone set forth a campaign whereby he raised thousands of dollars for the purpose of erecting an extravagant monument in his friend's memory, which was eventually be placed in the Chicago vicinity. The book "Field Flowers: Monument Edition" was released in 1896 and coincided with the inauguration of the campaign to raise funds for the eventual monument. Natural folds; staple holes near the upper left corner; several small inkblots near the date. Very good(-) condition. American architect and partner in the firm of McKim, Meade & White, the frontrunner among Beaux-Arts firms.

        Fotografia originale di Mario Nunes Vais raffigurante, a distanza, il Maestro Giacomo Puccini in barca vicino allo "Chalet da Emilio" sul Lago di Massaciuccoli. Fotografia databile attorno al 1896 circa.

      Fotografia in formato orizzontale, applicata su cartoncino rigido in formato cm.24,5x34. Il Maestro, in vestito chiaro, si sta avvicinando in barca alla palafitta che ospita lo "Chalet da Emilio", ove compaiono alcuni personaggi. Nella parte destra firma autografa di Nunes Vais. "Il fotografo amatoriale Mario Nunes Vais (Firenze, 1856 - 1932) era un uomo colto e raffinato della Firenze di cavallo secolo, appartenente ad una famiglia ebraica livornese da poco trapiantata a Firenze. Non fece mai commercio della sua attività che considerava come piacevole hobby e nell'arco di circa quaranta anni realizzò più di sessantamila fotografie. Attento e curioso del mondo che lo circondava riuscì, attraverso le sue fotografie, a riprendere la società del suo tempo, senza limitazioni e sempre spinto da un forte senso artistico. Egli incontrò una grande varietà di personalità che posarono per lui nella stanza a pian terreno del palazzo in via Borgognissanti o nella sua mansarda di borgo degli Albizi a Firenze. Fu il fotografo preferito di Gabriele D'Annunzio dal 1898 al 1910 e dei maggiori poeti crepuscolari e futuristi. Nel 1913, quando venne organizzata dalla rivista Lacerba la mostra dei pittori futuristi, Nunes Vais li seguì per tutta la giornata fotografandoli da soli o in gruppo e riprendendoli nei luoghi più caratteristici di Firenze. Marinetti, Carrà, Papini, Boccioni, Palazzeschi e Soffici, scriveranno in quell'occasione: "Gloria al Futurismo volontà + novità + energia + simpatia vivissima per il grande Nunes Vais". Tra i protagonisti della vita italiana da lui ritratti rimangono immortalati, solo per citare alcuni nomi, Benedetto Croce, Giovanni Gentile, Eugenio Montale, Thomas Mann, Giacomo Puccini, Guglielmo Marconi, Edmondo De Amicis, Paola Borboni, Vittorio De Sica. In una lettera di Giovanni Papini indirizzata all'amico fotografo Mario Nunes Vais si legge: "Dicevano che la fotografia avrebbe ammazzato la pittura. Invece la fotografia, diventando sempre più perfetta, sta salvando la pittura dal momento che questa dev'essere sempre di più la negoziazione di quella - cioè sempre più lontana e diversa dalla cosiddetta realtà che vedono tutti". Morì pochi anni prima della promulgazione delle famigerate leggi razziali antiebraiche (1938), che lo avrebbero colpito come colpirono tutti gli ebrei d'Europa compresi tanti cittadini di Firenze, tra cui la figlia Laura, che miracolosamente sfuggì alla morte e che nel 1973 donò tutti i materiali all'Istituto centrale per il Catalogo e la documentazione" (da wikipedia). Lo "Chalet da Emilio" era una palafitta sul Lago di Massaciuccoli, ed era un luogo amatissimo da Puccini, che lì incontrava i suoi amici. Fu proprio allo Chalet che fu fondato il famos "Club La Bohème".
